Huge signing. Unlike the past 10 years, our young talent is all extended and sticking fat for the journey. Great to see!

Keep working hard Trac and you’ll enjoy success in red and blue with your mates!

I love the use of the plural in premierships. Arrogance and talent can be an exciting mix.

 

Pledging his loyalty to Melbourne, Petracca expressed how important it was for him to remain a one-club player.

“It means everything. The club put faith in me as an 18-year-old kid and drafted me, and all I want to do is repay that faith,” he said.

“That’s by winning premierships and staying at the club for as long as I can."

I cause he sign up he is Italian, what u Skips don't understand is as Italians are the most loyal people on earth, Italian AFL  players really leave there first club

A couple of typos in there but l think we get the gist of your point. 

First hand, l can confirm ltalians once trusted, are one of the most giving and loyal cultures around. 

Once betrayed, stay well away! 

Love what CP5 has done, to return the club's faith in him. 

MFC is slowly building and binding a very high class list for the years ahead.

Wonder, and if ever Mr Connors has tried to incorporate the word loyalty back into one of his contracts.

See, once Trac said the word "loyalty" it was all over...........

That’s a bit of a myth.

:P

 

Purple made that up on radio, he ask  Mark Ricciuto, if it was true that Melbourne offered 2 first rounders and trac for lever, mark said where do I sign. Purple just makes thing up a bit like a  scattergun rumour maker.

I’ve never heard that one, and it just sounds outright ridiculous.

Adelaide’s list manager inquired into Petracca as part of the Lever trade. I heard Justin Reid state this on trade radio. He said Melbourne and Petracca’s manager swiftly declined.

St Kilda stuffed up SO badly with their first pick. This guy was a no brainer.

You can build a list around him.

Apparently he was thought to be a bit immature, yet all I see is limitless enthusiasm, loyalty and an unbridled team focus.

I absolutely love this kid. I’m pumped about this extension.

Super pumped!

Fantastic news. It'll send a huge message through the talented young group we have.

Just as an aside do you notice that CP5 jnr's neck is thicker that big bucks. Just wait until he grows into the Truck.

How this for timing - I literally just opened my four year old son’s new membership pack.

On the front of his membership card, it has a photo of Petracca. He’s Henry’s favourite player - Henry thinks he’s a real life T-Rex.

On the back of his membership card, it says ‘Consecutive years of membership: 6’.

I signed Henry up as a 20 week old foetus - exact full name and accurate (future) date of birth. Pretty confident he’s the youngest official member in the history of the club.

He’s already waiting for his signed birthday card from the red and blue T-Rex.

I’m relieved he’s committed to this club.

That last line probably covers the feeling of 40 000 others RB

Another positive step forward for the club.  We all know what a fantastic player Trac is, but he is also a terrific person and just the sort of personality you need at the club.  

It's more great news for the MFC and I can't wait to see him tearing it up through the middle this season and beyond!

Interesting

I assume he got a raise for 2018 and then a good amount for 2019 and 2020.

Must have meant that they had some salary cap movement left for this season which is no surprise given the renewals we are facing at end of season.

Well executed by the club and would love to see one or two others signed in the next few months.

How much is the foetus membership?

    EYES ON RED & BLUE by Wilma from West Perth

    It was a great weekend for the Red and the Blue on this side of the Nullarbor.   On Saturday, West Perth bested Claremont by two goals after leading all day with the exception of a few early minutes to take out the WAFL Premiership and on Sunday, Melbourne scored a five goal win over Fremantle with a stunning four goals to zip in the final term.   Again, it was the red and the blue leading nearly all day to record their fifth win from six games.   The ou

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES by The Oracle

    Part One - ZERO HOUR, 9AM The AFL Trade Period begins in earnest at 9.00am amid the announcement of a bombshell by North Melbourne’s 2021 Number 1 draft pick Jason Horne-Francis that he wants to leave the club and return to his home state to play for Port Adelaide.  The Herald Sun is reporting that “Horne-Francis will cite the instability at North Melbourne this year in his first season“ along with a likely continuation of chaos as a result of the uncertainty surrounding coach Alastair

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid
